Is there any way in Automize that I can tell the prorgam what specific return codes in my programs mean? Here is a couple examples:

If program 1 has a return code of 4 it has failed and needs to halt the chain it's in and email someone, but if that same program returns a code 5 that it failed it needs to email someone and then just continue with the chain.

Second Example: Program 2 returns a code of 4 which means it failed and needs to run another program, after successful completion email someone.
Whereas return code 6 may mean task failed, run next program which fixes it and moves forward with no email.

I guess what I am trying to ask is, is there any way Automize can do two different actions on the same program based on return codes that are both > 0?

Thanks for the help! Your program is quite handy!

Consider first example:
1) I assume this program is run via command / wincommand task. Assume this is Step 1. The first exit code condition can be checked in the chain step 1 itself, i.e. if exit code == 4, go to step X (email somebody), where X is last step in chain.

2) Create a variable monitor task and check if the exit code of the program ==5. Run this variable monitor as Step 2 in the chain. If exit code = 5, then this variable monitor exit code = -100. In this case, go to Step X-1, (email somebody). Make sure that step X-1 has the condition: Chain always stops at this step.
